In Nigeria, the country's postal codes are numeric and consist of six digits each. The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) splits the nation into nine distinct regions, each of which contributes to the first digit of the country's postal code. The dispatch district for outgoing sorting is determined by adding the first digit to the value of the second and third digits. The final three digits indicate the location to which the package will be delivered. A post office facility, a rural area, or an urban area are all examples of the types of places that could serve as delivery locations.
